Overall, this is about the nicest banjo available for under $500. It shares many features of higher end professional grade banjos!
Features such as the 3 ply layered rim, notched tension hoop, and resonators make for a very solid bluegrass banjo...while the rolled brass tone ring keeps the weight down while adding projection and brightness to the tone. This is a solid option for anyone wanting to get into bluegrass because it will suit you well on into your intermediate stages of playing, and it’s also a great choice for professional level players who just want a lighter weight banjo. Includes Manufacturer Lifetime Warranty, Free Shipping, Free 5th String Spike Installation, and Free Professional Setup!
